3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, at Cardinal. It pours a pale brown body under an off-white head leaving some lacings. Dried fruits, caramel, dark sugars and chocolate in the aroma. Some spiced hints and prunes, and a faint alcohol touch. It’s full-bodied and with a soft carbonation, medium sweet. There’s an ok bitterness in the flavor, along with caramel malts, dark sugar, chocolate, prunes and a spiced hint. Lasting finish. A pretty nice one, working well as a Christmas beer I think. 140726

Dark brown woth brown head. Aroma is sweet, belgian yeast, roasted malts. Taste is sweet and malty, first that strikes me is westmalle :) got a feeling theres the same yeast strain here. A really nice christmas dubbel
Dark brown, a little hazy with brown head. Aroma sweet and malty. Taste sweet and malty as weel, a little simple without finesse. Not the best abbey dubbel.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle 50cl from henrik thanks. A dark beer with huge head. Nose is very astringent like, kind of Caulier Bon secours yeast. Aroma is sweet malty, notes of burnt caramel and this Caulier notes I personally don’t like, kind of rotted vine. Not my cup of tea.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
50 cl bottle from ølbutikken, 49dkk. clear brown, smoot hlight brown head.
Nutty aroma, mild browncakes, some roasted malts - not sweet. flavor is malts, yeasts, notes of fruits, alc. bitterness, caramel. Not quite my idea of a good double, in fact resebles many other danish attempts at the style that failed imo. As for a danish christmas beer it is pretty good and well above the more widely distributed competition - on par with the average widely distributed belgian ones in fact - but sort of not really up to the level where amager normally is. ymmv
